The street numbers 49 to 58 on the Bäckerbreitergang form a closed ensemble of simple, restored half-timbered houses from the 18th to 19th centuries and are characteristic for this residential area.

The houses on the Bäckerbreitergang remind passers-by of life in the 17th century. At that time, half-timbered houses were built especially for the lower classes; today, they are among the last preserved examples of this way of life due to their narrow construction, also known as “Gängeviertel”, or alley quarter. Sometimes, the flats could only be reached through narrow alleys between the half-timbered houses or through inner courtyards. The road pavement still hints at how narrow these alleys actually were.
